Fun with Funnel Cake

Sunday evenings are wonderful.  Since I work on Saturdays, we try and make the most of our short Sunday evenings, since church is done at 4 (blech!  I very much dislike the 1-4 slot).  So we had our delicious dinner of garlic and rosemary pork loin, sweet potato chipotle gratin and baked corn on the cob and were
ca-RA-ving something sweetish and yummy to fill our dessert tummy's.  Our choice for the evening?  Funnel Cakes!  They were so yummy and monumentally cheaper than buying them at the fair.  Essentially, it's a pancake batter without butter/oil. 

Here's a funnelicious cake frying up now: 

We tried a bunch of different methods when pouring the batter into the oil, and it made some fun designs!
A half eaten cake with powdered sugar, mmmmmm.
To make pouring the batter easier, we put it into an empty corn syrup bottle with a spout, perfect!
Marin starting to complain that she couldn't eat her's because it was too messy.  I offered to take it away...no more complaints!
